Rocky Point, Mexico is one of the most popular vacation destinations for families and couples year after year because of its warm climate, white sandy beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters. There are endless activities to enjoy off the coast of Laguna Shores and the Laguna Shores Resort in Rocky Point (also referred to as Puerto Penasco) where guests can rent a luxury villa right on the beach and take a dip in the ocean and rest by the waves while reading a favorite book or watching the local fishing boats bring in the catch of the day.
While the Puerto Penasco beaches are ideal for lounging and taking leisurely dips in the ocean or taking a stroll about the town to meet the locals, tourists and vacationers can enjoy some of the most memorable water adventures during their stay including snorkeling, scuba diving, boating trips, deep sea fishing, kayaking, parasailing and jet skiing to name just a few!
As fun as all these activities are, nothing beats the banana boat which is the perfect way to enjoy the warm waters of Rocky Point as a family or even a rather large group. Banana boating is suitable for all ages so the younger kids and grandma and everyone in between can have fun together.
Parties can rent either a single, double or a family sized banana boat to take out into the water together. There is typically a professional driver of the banana boat who is likely an employee of the resort or of the banana boat rental company. Usually these rentals for banana boat rides are pretty affordable, averaging about $5 per person.
Once you’ve rented your boat, everyone climbs aboard what is quite literally a giant, inflatable banana with handles and spots for sitting, and holds on tight while the driver steers the boat throughout the waters, perhaps smoothly at first and then with a few more twists and turns to stir up the fun a bit. Be prepared as at the end of the enjoyable banana boat ride, the driver will help you all exit by gently toppling the boat and dumping all participants into the warm waters.
As you enjoy your stay in Puerto Penasco, Mexico and Laguna Shores with your loved ones atop a large banana boat in the sea, be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen and get ready to have a truly memorable vacation.
